13th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Shore Sunrise

This is an image of the beach and Atlantic Ocean off Assateague Island, Virginia early in the morning. I wanted a photograph of the sun reflecting off the waves, and since Assateague Island is on the Atlantic Ocean, the only time to do that was in the morning. I was pleased with the image and very much enjoyed the serenity of the cool ocean breeze off the beach.
